Die Antwoord released their debut album, $O$, a year after the formation of the group. While the album was released free online, Die Antwoord didn’t expect the number of fans the album attracted. The following days, Die Antwoord dropped their first music video for the single, “Enter The Ninja”. Die Antwoord received over 7 million views in a matter of months for the music video. Their music caught the attention of Interscope Records, to which they signed with in 2010. After signing with Interscope Records, Die Antwoord headlined their first tour in 2010. A year later, Die Antwoord left Interscope Records over creative differences. The same year, the group formed their own music label, Zef Recordz. Die Antwoord dropped their second album, Ten$Ion, under their record label in early 2012.
After the release of their third studio album, Die Antwoord went on a short tour across Europe for the summer. When the group got back, Die Antwoord started working on their fourth album. In between working on their album, the duo still found time to focus on other projects. In 2017, Die Antwoord announced their fifth album would be their last.
